Marlborough Road Academy is on the boundary of the Salford Education Authority. When applying for a place, please complete the Salford Application form for entry. 

We can currently accept up to 39 children into Nursery each year. 

You can apply online at:

Children can be admitted to the nursery when they are 3 years old or if they will reach this age before 31 August in the year they are admitted.

Admission applications should be made through the Salford Admissions Team for September intake. Information and application packs will be available from late October in the year before the September intake.

The deadline for applications is usually the middle of January. Places are announced via letter or email usually during the middle of April. You will normally be given at least 10 working days to let the Local Authority know whether you want to accept this offer. If you do not respond within this timescale, the place may be offered to another child.

Late applications will only be dealt with once all other applications have been allocated and accepted.

A place in the nursery class does not guarantee a place in Reception. All parents must re-apply for a Reception class place.
